Firmware for Ideapad A10

Q: Firmware for Ideapad A10

Hi all,I'm in the need of restoring my Ideapad A10 model 20323 (loaned it to a friend who - genius - erased the internal sdcard to install a rom without backing up the disk).Nothing serious I said: it's simply a matter of downloading the firmware from Lenovo servers.Surprisingly, I couldn't find anything.I realize that the Ideapad A10 is an old model, but I think that Lenovo servers are big eneough to host the firmware of a discontinued model.Moreover, the netbook always worked well: so what should I do ? Throw it away only because of lack of such an easy remedy like downloading the restore image ?I am simply asking for what I paid for: the ability to use the product I purchased.I am confident that Lenovo will soon resolve this issue and will upload the firmware.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

So yesterday I decided to update some drivers and I noticed there was a new BIOS version, version CDCN53WW.My Y700-15ISK was running the CDCN52WW. The new firmware was correctly updated and the armageddon started.I immediately noticed two things but I bet that's just the tip of the iceberg:    1. Some external HDD we not seen anymore by the system   2. The computer had a random crash watching a video, something I hadn't seen since more than a decade ago, the audio getting stuck, the image frozen (4 sec pressure on the OFF button necessary). The first case was interesting, I have 4 external HDDs, one has an issue with the USB 3.0 so I can only use it through a USB 2.0 cable, and curiously that one was the only one working; so I guess the problem was with the 3.0. I've encountered these two problems but I had enough.I decided to downgrade to version CDCN52WW. In order to do that, you need to enter the BIOS (press F2, reaaaally early on the boot process or you miss your moment) and find the setting where you can allow to downgrade the BIOS, if you don't do that the installer (CDCN52WW.exe) will refuse to install the BIOS claiming that the version installed is newer.After reinstalling version CDCN52WW all the problems went away.Someone at LENOVO should take a look at this update, I checked the changelog and not much has changed so, unless the modification was unmentioned, the thing that messed with all this was one ...

On the task bar my audio symbol has a red x next to it.  When I place the curser over the audio symbol it displays the message "No Audio Output Device is installed".  I have downloaded The Realtek driver and after installing the driver I got the message "The driver installation wizard successfully scanned your machine but did not find any device to be updated".  I ran the device manager and it does not list a device for audio/sound/speaker.  I have not removed any hardware from my computer and the sound was working before the firmware update 2.23.0.  I had the same problem several months ago after an update and I downloaded the driver and it corrected the problem.  My computer is under warranty so where do I get it fixed?

Dear Lenovo, After perusing the recent 2016/2017 comments by multiple users on similar posts about Ideapad Z510 battery from across locations/countries - it appears that the firmware that you had issued last year - has somehow got overwritten / superceded maybe in either late 2016  or early 2017 by some more recent/latest updates. I am writing from India and facing the same probem that the battery is showing 100% and then going off almost immediately. This probem had fortunately got solved last year when you had issued a firmware update - but now when i am trying to use the same files again - it basically conveys that "no battery available to update" because that particular firmware is already applied on our laptop. Hence, can you please release newer firmware update for this same issue -  using a z510 system having current till-date updates for different OS - win 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 - same way as you have released for thinkpad series of laptops too on the weblink - http://support.lenovo.com/in/en/downloads/ds001322 Come to think of it - that if a fully working battery is being "prompted" as weak and "need to buy" - but actually is a fully functioning hardware - isnt it a bit of a letdown for your users??? - what to say of  some who might have already bought and replaced with newer replacement batteries - which is actually a completely avoidable cost? I am sure you need to resolve this issue soon so as to restore c... Read more

Hi
 
I got a 2nd hand Lenovo Ideapad 100S. It came with Win10 installed but had someone elses profile and data. 
(I am not sure if it originally had Win8.1 when it was shipped, there is no rollback option anymore)
 
My preference is to wipe the current installation completely by downloading Win10 and installing a clean copy off USB. 
 
I also usually prefer to delete all partitions, including recovery because future reinstallations can be done from scratch via USB. (I don't need the option of reinstalling from recovery partitions , the extra space is more important)
 
I see a warning in the user guide however .....
"Do not delete or modify the Recovery Partition on a WIMBoot-enabled computer. If the Recovery Partition is deleted or modified, you may not be able to restore Windows to the factory status. For computer models on which WIMBoot is enabled, deleting the Recovery Partition may cause Windows to fail to start. How can I determine whether the Windows running on my computer is WIMBoot enabled? WIMBoot technology is normally enabled on copies of Windows 10 Update running on SSD (or eMMC) -only computer models."
 
What is the best way to do this?

Install a clean copy and remove the partition by booting off a USB, or should I not do this?

A:Ideapad 100s - Win10 clean installation on ideapad...

 Hi larrens , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
It's a good thing you posted first before proceeding with any clean installation. 
Not sure what the Machine Number is to verify the details and specifications of your system.
 
But if you have a pc with a Windows Image Boot (or WIMBoot) you may not want to choose a clean installation. 
This new deployment of installation is compressing part of a big OS file so that you can have an operating system that can only take small spaces intended for small storages (SSD).
 
Best option to wipe out previous owners profile is a have a fresh out of the box image is using the Puch button Factory reset (Novo key similar to Item 7 page 1). Simply shutdown the system and use the button to turn on, System Recovery option would provide One key recovery from initial backup to do it. 
 
WIM boot are usually created thru OEM depot authorized by Microsoft . DIY for WIMboot maybe a bit complicated.
Click on underlined links for further review. 
 
Hope this answered your query.
Update us.

Firmware - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia






Quote:
In electronic systems and computing, firmware is a term often used to denote the fixed, usually rather small, programs and/or data structures that internally control various electronic devices. Typical examples of devices containing firmware range from end-user products such as remote controls or calculators, through computer parts and devices like hard disks, keyboards, TFT screens or memory cards, all the way to scientific instrumentation and industrial robotics. Also more complex consumer devices, such as mobile phones, digital cameras, synthesizers, etc., contain firmware to enable the device's basic operation as well as implementing higher-level functions.

The codec pack is easy enough- Techspot has what you need here http://www.techspot.com/downloads/775-klite-codec-pack-full.html
Install and then try running the discs.

How does the drive show up in the Device Manager ? No exclamation mark in a yellow triangle?
What DVD's won't it run-commercial (retail) movies, or discs you are attempting to burn ? If the latter, what brand of discs.

If it definitely requires a firmware update then it seem's you're out of luck as there are none as far as I can tell.

Face it, CD/DVD/BLU-RAY all use firmware on their drives, digital cameras use it, USB uses it, video cards on computers use it; pretty much every different kind of hardware I can think of uses firmware.

Firmware is burned program code and data, so all hardware needs program code and data memory to execute.

Aside from programming for hardware directly, all hardware seems to have burned program code in one way or another.

What kind of router you have? It it is Linksys, there there is a good chance there is one for it.

Keep in mind, RF communications is a two way street. Just by adding power to router you may not solve your problem.

Immagine you and your freind are 1 mile apart, talking to each other via powered loudspeakers, one at each end. Now, you say I want to increase our talking range and I am going to make my speaker 4 times louder. Then you go 4 miles away. Your friend will be able to hear you. You will not be able to hear your freind. He is still on low power, suitable for only 1 mile range of communications. In this situation you have an UNBALLANCED set up which is in one direction adequate and in the other dirction it is NOT. Do you get my point?

Is this just going to take a long time or is there something wrong?
